helped by her time out of the political spotlight really. so it's a good thing for president obama. it allows the two of them to come together and make that argument as she made that they're really above politics here. >> morris, no matter what she does there's going to be speculation about what does this mean for 2016. do you read anything into this joint interview having to do with her possibility of running a few years down the road? >> yeah. for sure. >> t.j., i just feel good when i see a unified strong democratic party. it makes democrats feel good. we know we don't always have the situation. as my friend susan knows. but this is a strong message that this is a job well done. it's a shift going into governing. there will be another shift between obama and clinton when she starts to run for president. so this is just the appropriate way to handle it. it feels very good as a democrat to see them together. >> what about joe though, morris? what about joe? what if he decides to get into the race in 2016? >> i think they'll find something else to do in 2016. >> all right. well sus
is correct. >> greg: you can't arrest yourself. >> bob: i congratulate the obama administration. >> kimberly: down to five seconds. thank you for watching. see you tomorrow. ♪ >> bret: a bipartisan plan for immigration reform. is this the one thing washington can come together on? politics and the policy. this is "special report." ♪ ♪ >> bret: good evening. i'm bret baier. almost everyone in washington agrees the immigration system is broken. and needs fixing. but forget the small print. no one could even agree on the major points. now, that may be changing. chief political correspondent carl cameron tells us about a proposal that might actually have a chance. >> day before the president unveils the immigration reform plan in las vegas, bipartisan group of senators laid down the framework on the controversial issue. >> we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problems and becomes law. >> four democrats joined four republicans including arizona senator john mccain, top g.o.p. advocate for immigration reform for years. influential
and sounded like a grouch attacking president obama. a very political speech which i thought was discordant yesterday. there were two -- captain kelly, gabby giffords's husband, and the captain of the bald moore county sheriff's department james johnson who spoke very powerfully articulately and eloquently for common sense gun control measures, and then the other side of the panel, there were three gun nuts on the panel. david coppel, a professor from denver, a woman gail trotter, and wayne lapierre from the nra. gail trotter was out of her mine. i mean, she said guns -- i got the exact quote here -- that guns have to -- guns keep women safe. guns keep women safe. guns make women safe is the exact quote. and every mother needs an ak-15 in the home to protect their kids. and of course wayne lapierre comes back and says the only answer is we have to make every school an armed camp. >> it's time to throw an immediate blanket of security around our children. about a third of our schools right now have armed security already, because it works, and that somebody is grow
to annihilate the party, that takes it to the future not the past. >> well look this is the most political presidency we've ever had, it's the perpetual campaign, as soon as the campaign was over and we started talking about the first serious piece of business the fiscal cliff, the obama administration ran it purely like a political campaign. if you heard the president's state of the union address where the vast majority of americans are worried about economic growth about job creation about these gigantic unprecedented deficits and the debt that our country has, he hardly mentioned that. >> all right, governor. >> in his inaugural dress. >> governor barbour, good to see you. >> thank you norah and charlie. >>> the nation's deep freeze is creating problems. firemen in lawrence massachusetts, had to fight two fires in the subfreezing weather, dealing with frozen hydrants and hose lines and in chicago these are new pictures of the snow as it falls on the windy city this morning. chicago is one of many places expecting a wintry mix today says meteorologist augustyniak
more aggressively? we being the u.s. government? >> we had a political narrative, the obama administration did, of the george bush equivalent of mission accomplished. it was job well done. we wanted the narrative to say everything is okay in libya. it's been a wonderful success story. she did have time to go through the tv shows when it was a victory lap about the libya, the overthrow of gaddafi, she has better things to do on sunday mornings than explain this failure in leadership and failure in accountability and failure of our intelligence or what happened. we still don't have a clear picture. >> congresswoman thanks so much for coming in. >> thank you. >> coming up, perfume for babies? sounds slightly ridiculous, right? wrong. coming to a store near you. >> then are you ready for some football? clayton has the gadgets and gizmos to take your super bowl party to a whole new level. i wish he had the nachos. >> welt. >> you ready for some football. the countdown is on for the super bowl. lucky for you clayton has the gantle you need to make your party teched out. >> nertd -
connell. >> some have said it was it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? will obama try to annihilate the republican party?, or tweet me @carolcnn. i'll be right back.
doesn't want to be marginalized, but people who look at politics are looking at four years down the pike. donald trump, what could be the motivation here? what is going on? >> look, they came together, i mean, this came a long way because if you remember, obama called them racist, bill and hillary, they were racists and the anger was unbelievable. in one way you could say it's the nice they're obviously together. i think the more interesting thing is what's going on with "60 minutes." they're an investigatory group. i've seen some great work done from them, but not done with respect to president obama. it's like the laughing and having fun, this is like a "60 minute" interview. what happened to mike wallace? mike call lace is spinning in his grave, i think. >> brian: the next story after that showed you why there is "60 minutes," because of the incredible story of lance armstrong. >> that's true. >> gretchen: could it be, if you look at this from a political point of view, they did not like each other when they were running against each other, obviously. >> beyond not like. >> gretchen:
global zero that favors eliminating all such weapons. >>> political insiders say it looked more like a campaign event than a presidential speech. president obama pushed for immigration reform before an enthusiastic crowd in las vegas yesterday. his proposal is very similar to one being put forth by a group of bipartisan senators. >> action must follow. we can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. >>> and obviously, this is -- there's certainly -- the chances are higher now that something is going to happen on this issue compared to years past. the biggest hurdle, though, is that folks who aren't too crazy about this idea are saying in order for these things to happen, let's focus on border security. if all these folks will just flood into the country, it makes no difference what we're doing on the legislative side of things. so border patrol at the same time we're creating this pathway. >> but something is going to be done. at this point, given the number of latinos that voted in this election, both sides of the aisle realize this is a voting bloc they n
was not good enough for the crisis the obama team inherited. >> we had an overwhelm iing imperative to restore american leadership. it was in question and it was, in part, because of political decisions that had been made prior to the obama administration, but also because of the economic crisis. >> reporter: from the war on terror to the arab spring, they faced upheavals around the world. what went wrong? >> benghazi went wrong. that was a terrible example of trying to get the right balance between being in a threatening place or not being there. >> reporter: but in retrospect, shouldn't a cable warning of a security threat from an ambassador in a conflict zone, shouldn't that get the highest possible attention immediately? >> well, that's what we're hoping to make sure does happen in the future. >> reporter: she made progress, though fragile, on her lifelong commitment for equal rights for women and girls. >> i worry about extremist groups, fanatics who shoot, you know, teenage girls because they want to go to school. >> reporter: but work for the nonstop clinton came to a halt when she fell
the political implications of what happens. robert, is this no matter how it looks a win for the white house? is this a win for president obama? does this become next to probably health care reform one of his lasting legacies? >> yes however i think it is a net neutral for both parties at the end of the day. the white house will claim it as they should because they are driving the conversation. republicans are also going to claim credit as they should because they are going to say we got this through the house and senate. >> i guess we could aargue that if republicans and democrats aren't talking about impgration reform in a year that is a win for the gop, as well. >> i love talking about politics as much as the next guy. on this issue this is a win for the country. you cannot have 13 million people in the shadows and think that is good for the future of the country. too many young people worried about the future. that is not the way a country needs to be run. in terms of the political consequences or the benefits, both sides i think can make the argument that they benefit. at the end of the
. this decision said the recess appointments as they have been done not just by president obama, but all presidents in recent decades. they are all unconstitutional. >> sorry this a political decision? >> this is the question that is hard to answer. these are three very conservative republican judges. the political implications of the decision are clear. for a republican anti-democrat and can i say that that was the motivation of the judges? i can't. >> can we assume it's the u.s. supreme court that will consider this or leave it hanging? >> they have to. it's too important of a decision and think the supreme court will take it. >> this is an automatic. >> almost automatic. very difficult to predict because this is an aggressive conservative majority on the supreme court. citizens united and campaign finance. the second amendment and gun control. this court has been aggressively conservative and it could be affirmed by the supreme court. >> what are does it say about president obama? >> the d.c. circuit court of appeals that decided this case often called the second most important court
to see who can put the most lenient path forward if obama demands a smoother path to citizenship. let's make it as hard and as egregious as possible. wouldn't that work better? he questioned the political utility of a deal. not the part that involves human beings or anything. saying he reviews colorful research my friends indicating immigrants no longer came to better their lot through hard work but because they believed the government's source of prosperity. in short, they were not viable republicans. they were just moochers like the rest of us 47%. in addition to his fear that immigrants lack a basic sense of industry and responsibility, rush worried republicans will be falsely intact as intolerant because of the thing he said before that part. why would they be -- that's weird. that's crazy. [ cuckoo clock chimes ] >> stephanie: because he said he thinks you're too lazy and not hard working enough to be republicans. >> what did i say? >> stephanie: brown people are so sensitive. >> they lack some kind of chip. >> stephanie: sensitivity chip. >> something. >> stephanie: as jennifer
obama promised he would do this in his first year. he did not. the worry is we go at this again and it doesn't work. the president gets all the political points. the republicans get all the political blame. a political victory but not a strategic victory for the country. we need to make this a national purpose of policy and not an exercise in politics. i hope we'll keep our eye on that. that is going to be the big challenge. host: we have an idea from jbc. al in rhode island, hi, al. caller: good morning. thank you for c-span. the american people want immigration but they want legal immigration. we do not one no favoritism for anybody. you talk about language. the chinese came here. it is not right. this president is so far off the ball. we will bring 11 million more people into this country when we don't put those people to work first? i did not think that is right. we have other problems that are more important. we're flooding this country with unskilled workers. guest: the only reason on skilled workers come to this country is because there is unskilled work that needs to be
nation's capital. i think it's safe to say there is a new level of political intrigue because of something that air on television last night. a rare sight to see. president barack obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton sitting down together, side by side, for a joint interview. this as mrs. clinton prepares to leave office on friday. the two indulged in a lot of mutuual praise while talking to "60 minutes." >> hillary will go down as one of the best secretary of states we've had. >> this has been such an honor. >> such an important adviser on a whole range of issues. >> i want to bring in jamie rubin. i have to ask, when you sat down and watched that interview, what do you see? >> i guess just seeing the interview itself is pretty stunning. i have worked in the area for the secretary of state, working for the white house, setting up various media opportunities and never heard of over seen anything like that, where you have the president actually side sbid with a member of his cabinet, any member of his cabinet. anyone at all. the president always goes alone, so
, they really were going to sort of change the face of american politics. >> john: they did. >> they did temporarily. >> john: they marginalized the whole brand. >> fast forward three years. beck is gone. obama wins easily and now palin's gone. the whole thing sort of imploded as it had to because it was so reckless and it was so sort of radically hateful. you know, beck with his conspiracies and palin about her nonstop sense of victimization and things like that. so it's worth noting this is soft the end of an era. fox itself, still very much lost to conspiracies. still very, very much loss in a sense of self-pity particularly with obama's inauguration. but it's not what roger ailes thought he was going to build. that's not what they have anymore. >> john: do you think -- this is my last question about palin. i want to move on to fox news and their outrage model but do you think that ails did this to give pail an out so she could say she quit? was it an insult to of oar her so little money or was he doing her a favor? >> i think it was an insult. my guess is they felt like they had to o
enough for him, bill, to defeat the republicans politically or even based on policy which you would expect from any president. for president obama it is about pounding the republican party into oblivion. bill: let me talk about how republicans react to this in a moment, monica. emily, get on record, what do you think about the dustbin of history from speaker boehner? >> i think it is disappointing john boehner would go to the extreme talking points. he has not always been an extreme guy. he has been in the house for a long time. look to president obama, look actually at his record. when we moved into the sequester fight in early december, the first thing out of president obama's mouth he would look at any good idea regardless who it came from. he has consistent history of trying to work across the aisle. bill: does he now? bipartisan? >> the ideas that he a lick tated in the inauguration speech, those are american values. these are not traditionally democratic values. republicans used to be able to talk about these issues. it is really the republican party that has left the center,
of late, but today an associated press raised these concerns saying, quote: in politics power resides in the moment. any immediate economic setback or the perception of one could weaken obama's clout or at least distract him as he carefully tries to put his imprint on initiatives dealing with immigration and gun violence. let's talk about it with a.b. stoddard, an associate editor and columnist for "the hill." a.b., the president has been mostly talking about immigration and gun violence lately, and yet we still have an unemployment rate at 7.8%. if labor force participation were the same as when he took office, it would be over 10%. we've got a fall in our nation's economic output in the last quarter, and you've got new, um, shrinking of consumer confidence. those are some pretty big issues. does that threaten to derail what the president wants to accomplish? >> well, it will. you mentioned before whether or not these issues would distract him. i mean, a troubled economy has to distract him whether or not he actually focuses on it is another question. much of these last few months we
-abiding gun owners who are parents. what it is is viewpoint and political discrimination and political persecution, no doubt about it. >> alisyn: michelle, speaking of schools, let's talk about president obama's plan for public schools in the country. it's called common core. he's setting standards. it's part of the race to the top program. what do we know about common core standards? >> well, a lot of parents and teachers and educators out there are learning more and more about it. it was really stealthily funded and seeded through the race to the top and federal stimulus programs, which were basically bribes to get states to sign on to these bogus standards before they were even written. so there was some core constitutional issues here about local control. for my perspective president reason why i'm devoting much more of my time and my syndicated column and loss in my blog to this issue over the next several weeks and months is that it is an undermining of academic excellence in this country. it is a trend of the left to undermine western civilization requirements, core math learnin
>> fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news live. there you have it. the white house is a step back and let the senate roll with this could get what president obama said he wanted which is a deal on immigration reform but instead the message we got out of the white house yesterday and you heard it there is i think it's important. the white house believes it is important before we let this moment pass to acknowledge that this is happening because of the president and his significant leadership on this. they just wanted to take a moment to pause and tell us how important it was that president obama gets the credit. that's what jay carney said. how does that help what we are seeing unfold right now which is a deal with republicans on capitol hill. how does this help or not? >> it does not help. it far from helps. the speech today we expect would not help either. that is why we saw that report from the congressional hispanic caucus saying don't push the republicans too hard on this. if they are coming to the table let them come in and let them be there, b
. obama, who was 14 when the war ended, the u.s. appeared to have escaped the deficit legacy of vietnam that clouded politics for generations. if mr. hagel is confirmed, the three most prominent figures apart from the president in the countries foreign policy debates -- mr. kerry in the state department, mr. hagel at the pentagon, and mr. mccain, will all derive a substantial part of their legitimacy from vietnam experiences. mr. mccain's relationship with mr. kerr it isy the striking tale of the lingering influence of the vietnam. more than a decade later, mccain traveled to massachusetts to campaign against mr. kerry. yet the pair worked so closely in the cause of reviving relations with vietnam that they became friends. when mr. kerry appeared at a senate confirmation hearing last week, he was introduced by mr. mccain, who praised his ' exemplary statesmanship.' mr. mccain's relationship with mr. hagel what has gone the opposite way.

fundamental issues in american history and politics and one that gets talked about much less than it should. that is race in america. a few days ago, president barack obama put its hand on the lincoln and martin luther king bible and took the oath of office almost 150 years since the emancipation population went into effect. he talked about the country's historic and continuing march for greater freedom. we at the "washington monthly" found it appropriate to devote the subjects to the conditions of minorities in america today. president obama as measured by his november vote totals retained the support of the americans of color, neither he nor the country have talked about much of race. he mentioned race fewer times in his first two years than any democrat resident since 1961. when he did talk about race, it often provoked a fierce backlash as when he said last year that if he had a son, he would look like trayvon martin, the young man who was killed tragedy in florida. tremendous backlash to that. he went silent on that issue. there has been generally a politically imposed code of silence
's one reason obama likes to come badge it's amazing. >> steve: it looks like cbs has a dog in that race. then you look at john dickerson, political director last week giving advice that the president should anilate the republican party going forward. it's interesting, in your book issues you talk about how during the campaign, the media absolutely ignored the biggest story. >> well, many big stories. >> steve: because they weren't helpful to the president. >> exactly. journalists, my old boss, bob novak, used to say a reporter is someone who would sell his soul for a story. it's when the story would make barak obama look bad or his presidency look like a failure, there is a total lack of journalistic curiousity, unwillingness to sell one's soul for a story. really big stories like benghazi became nonstories. editorial judgments were made to play these things down, to just set them aside, or you had a lot of the coverage of the job market that just didn't rise to the challenge of demonstrating how bad things were for people. we always hear about job when is there is a republican presiden
support. there is no political ideology that finds this cruel loss of life acceptable. i was incredibly pleased to see president obama include as part of his comprehensive plan to prevent gun violence a bill i first introduced in 2009 called the gun trafficking prevention act which would be the first federal law to define gun trafficking as a federal crime and will prevent guns from being moved into the hands of criminals. we have thousands of laws but none of them are directly focused on preventing someone from driving from one state to another state with a load of guns in the back of a truck that they can sell directly to criminals. it's shocking to me as a mother. it's shocking to me as a lawmaker but this is something we can actually fix. over the past three years more than 33,000 guns used in violence crimes showed signs of black market trafficking, 4 oh 20,000 firearms were stolen and thousands of guns with obliterated serial numbers were recovered by law enforcement. so while law enforcement is working over time to track down those who traffic these weapons, current law restricts
